"Industry Corridor on Staten Island's North Shore"

Western Avenue is a prime street for those seeking a nice, quiet refuge from the hustle and bustle of Staten Island traffic and noise, unfortunately, it comes at the expense of beauty.

I personally love a quiet drive on the weekends down Western Avenue, but of course anybody who has frequented the area knows the industry which existed for many decades.

Early in the 20th Century, a Proctor and Gamble factory began operated in the area. It's ivory soap products led to its being named "Port Ivory".

The factory has since closed, but Northern New Jersey's many chemical plants, the area's shipping and freighting industry and the Goethals Bridge have contributed to many an eyesore. Nonetheless, traffic is little, if any, and houses are practically non-existent.
